Do not use hostiger.co.uk

They supply you with terrible service and do not fix their own problems. They are a fail at life and deserve to die! But in all seriousness I highly recommend that you do not use their service, as you will regret it!!!

I know, when I closed my account on their hosting, they begged me to reopen it, when their service is very poor.

Yes they are terrible. I think this is the place that sent me a welcome notice after I tried to cancel my account. They're still sending me warning notices about lack of traffic and no site up and running. I couldn't get anything to work right with them.

Long Live Gigarank!

Be carefull with the hosting like that. Maybe they only want (stolen) your data then kick you from their service.

I find that happening with all your LARGE automated "Free" Web hosts. Even 1freehosting.com. They're good to a certain point, and then it's fail all the way. One just can't compensate for the human part in anything. We're very lucky here. As our leadership at Gigarank (Chris (DJB) & Un4saken) are an unbeatable team in terms of generosity of spirit, yet firm with rules to protect our hosting space, great expertise, and combined experience of years in the hosting business. Un4saken has a nose for mischief makers and seems to be able to stop them in their tracks even before they started something. I realize we have all kinds of great anti-malware and anti-this-that-and-another software going round, but you just can't beat human expertise and excellence particularly if they love what they are doing.

Yeah, "instant activation"-type hosts are nice if you need hosting in a pinch. But their servers are often overloaded and slow, not to mention commonly blacklisted by ISPs because they sadly attract spammers and others who use hosting for unsavory deeds.

The good thing about post to host sites, especially ones like Gigarank, is that it's easier to weed the people who would do nasty things with their hosting out, by how much effort they put into their posts, and most people like that probably would try instant activation sites first.

Did you mean hostinger ?

Hostinger group are bad for their brach server for local/country because it managed by someone that outside their company, as in my country : idhostinger.

The 'best' them only one things : free provider

Paid accounts are still in doubt.

I can confirm that they have very bad service everywhere. They closed my free hosting for no reason and now spam me with e-mails to come back.

Yeah I found out they had canceled my account because of "hundreds of thousands" of entries in the database event though I never touched them.

I was almost convinced by their services, good thing I decided to check their reviews beforehand! So I slipped away from that site! :yahoo: GIGARANK IS MUCH BETTER!

Thanks for the info.

My "website" (http://rrroberts.atwebpages.com/) is spread out across 4 free web hosting providers (just recently discovered/registered with Gigarank, have yet to apply for web hosting). It started as a way to put my resume online, and then grown to programming tutorials. All this was to provide an online presence to get the attention of potential employers. Now I continue the website to keep my skills semi-sharp (I am in my late 50's and considered 'over the hill').

Hostinger is one of those free providers (just an index page and 2 other pages). If I remember right, they are based in U.K. but their servers are in Cypress, which I thought was strange but what the heck. I cannot complain.

I am also using Awardspace, 50Webs (been with them the longest), and X10. X10 requires you login into your account at least once/month to keep it active. Zymic used to be good, net46 will overlay advertising on your page, which could cause black listing problems.


Genesis raises an excellent point about the human part - though I am finding this to be the trend in many industries (here I go again on my Soapbox). The trend in the Post-industrial world is to automate as many processes as possible and eliminate as many workers as possible. Those you cannot eliminate, replace with temporary low-paid low-cost foreign labor who do not have a stake whatsoever in the organization. If you cannot find or use low-paid low-cost foreign labor, then use local labor (preferably as young as possible to make intimidating them easier) who only have almost sufficient skills/experience to barely accomplish the job.

Sorry about the double post. Something goofy with the PC.

I got an email from this web hosting once to join them. When I got to the site (it was the version for my country), it was so badly translated into my language just from their homepage that I didn't even check the rest. I just wonder how they got my email address! :confused:

My father use to use hostiger. He would not stop complaining until he finally switched haha. They would keep putting him on hold for at least 15-20 minutes every time he had a problem.
